I knew a Keith Parkinson he used to live in a street just off Chapel Lane when he was married. Sadly he was only young when he died. Could this be the same gentleman?

My grandparents lived in Letterwewe Street and I played with Alan when I visited. Fantastic lad from a fantastic family. Just how I remember him !

David, I grew up in Letterewe Street, number 7, where did your grandparents live and what was their name?

I'm desperate for any photographs of Pottery Street ( apparently I lived at no 7 until I was a few months old ) or Letterewe Street. My family lived in the end house which I think was 23 ( not certain of that ) that overlooked the Corporation Bus Garage
